Lots of Cheer for TGIF Challenge

It is Christmas in July. Did you know that? It seems even though it is really hot, our minds are turning toward the holidays. TGIFC #221 was just what I needed to get inspired for the upcoming holiday. 155 days in case you are wondering.

TGIFC

I chose to go with some non-traditional colors for my card. Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green are some of my favorite colors ever, so picking them for Christmas is a no-brainer.  This snowman is so cute. It would be fun to find some boxes and make a 3D snowman to sit on the fireplace hearth.

I love the way this turned out.

How do you feel about color choices for Christmas? Red and Green or are you willing to try something different? I would love to know your thoughts.

Merry Christmas,

Just Add a Reindeer for Just Add Ink

I used Blueberry Bushel for this non- traditional color card. But I love it! Clean and Simple makes for a quick yet stunning card.

It may be hard to see but the blue is from the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper. The blue on blue pattern is so pretty,

Rustic Snowflake for Freshly Made Sketches

It has been awhile since I participated in a sketch challenge. I always enjoy them because they push me out of my comfort zone.

Last week I was playing around with embossing powders and created this rustic snowflake. It has been on my desk waiting for me to do something creative.

Then this Freshly Made Sketches #364 created by Kim came along and rescued my snowflake.

Here is the sketch:

 

Here is my card:

 

I heat embossed this snowflake with gold, silver and copper. I loved the way it came out so rustic and sort of “country.”

I do have a few more Snowflake Showcase cards to share this week… remember these products will disappear November 30.

I also have a few more Holiday Inspiration Newsletters to share. Make sure you sign up for my newsletter to receive free holiday tutorials.

Thanks for stopping by today.

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!

Snow is Glistening Cards #simplestamping

Thanksgiving Eve and we are gearing up for the big day. Thank goodness for #simplestamping. I have two more snowflake cards to share today. I am in love with this Snowflake Showcase Bundle. If you like it as much as I do then you need to order before the end of November.

Purple can be a Christmas color.

This card is created with a Stampin’ Up! note card. These cut & scored note cards are a huge time saver.

I stamped this card using Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. A few dots of Powder Pink added interest on the background. I layered the punched sentiment with silver glimmer paper and added silver thread for dimension. Lots of bling adds the finishing touch.

I almost didn’t share this card because unfortunately the Designer Series Paper is sold out. But it is so pretty, and I had to share.

We have several new colors this year and Merry Merlot is one of the new Neutral colors. It goes with everything! Have you tried it yet?

#Simple stamping is a great solution for you if you have procrastinated on your holiday cards.

Happy Thanksgiving!

#simplestamping Snowflake Style

Welcome to another Snowflake day. Last week 6000+ Stamping Up!® Demonstrators gathered in Orlando for one big party – OnStage.  OnStage is where demonstrators meet up with fellow stampers, learn new techniques, gain business information and have lots of fun.

Part of the focus at OnStage was reaching out to beginning stampers. Do you remember when you were a beginner? How about the first time you put ink to paper and a beautiful image appeared? It is almost magical.

Here is my magical beginner card for today. It is simple, yet  beautiful.

Several things make this card simple.

  • The Silver Foil edged card base is lovely. No layering needed. It even has a matching silver edged envelope.
  • Using the Stamparatus to stamp the Snowflake Tree was a breeze. Because the Stamparatus has two plates I could stamp the tree and then stamp the tree trunk. Flip, stamp, flip, stamp, done.
  • Stamp the Joy sentiment and punch with a circle punch. Add to card front with dimenstionals.
  • Stamp inside sentiment using the Stamparatus.
  • Add a few rhinestones as Christmas decorations.
  • #simplestamping completed in about 5 minutes.

A reminder: The Snowflake Showcase stamps and Thinlits will disappear November 30. You will want to order them today, so you can make beautiful Christmas cards.

Stop back tomorrow for more Snowflake inspiration.

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!

Dashing Deer for Christmas

Hello stampers. I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. I have been busy getting ready to attend OnStage. This is the 30th Anniversary of Stampin’ Up!® and the OnStage event should be amazing! I can’t wait to see all the new products and chat with all my stamping friends from all around the world.

Today I have an easy Christmas card to share with you. Dashing Deer stamps and dies are great for impressive cards that will wow your friends.

Elegant Dashing Deer

Tip: To get a smooth “deer” use a new cutting plate that does not have scratches on it. I also use a piece of copy paper over the copper foil to keep it from getting scratches or dents. If you get the little dots on your deer, turn it over and rub them out with a bone folder. Unfortunately, this Designer Series Paper (Joyous Noel) has sold out for the year. This paper must have been very popular!

I will be posting pictures of OnStage this week. Check in daily and join in on all the fun.

I am also sending Holiday Inspiration newsletters during November and December. Sign up for my newsletter to have Holiday Inspiration sent directly to your inbox. (upper right hand side of the home page)
